Zambia’s AFCON winning goalkeeper, Kennedy Mweene, has revealed that he has started preparing for his future after hanging boots and is taking a goalkeeping trainer’s course.

The Mamelodi Sundowns player recently announced he was going to take a break from Chipolopolo duties.

“I said I am moving away from the national team for some time, or to be excused because at that time I needed to concentrate on my coaching course I am currently doing with a Spanish institution. I sat (and learned) under the likes of Kalilo Kakonje, Davies Phiri among others,” Mweene said.

“I stayed on the national bench for four years watching all these guys and that’s how I got my experience. In as much as I am playing, I am also training as a goalkeeper coach. I want to get the right qualifications and combine them with my experience to instil knowledge in the talent young goalkeepers,” he said.

Mweene believes that the country has many talented goalkeepers, but is lagging behind in terms of qualifications for goalkeeper coaches adding that his desire is to be a goalkeeper coach.

He added that he began the move into coaching while he is still very active. “I started to do this training while I am still active in goal so I can combine theory with practicals.”
